Not me. Today, I'm a minnow swimming in the vast OCEAN, and relishing every single moment . . .

See this? This is me, sitting on the floor of my local Barnes and Noble, reading a book featuring Yours Truly and 25 of my [wish-they-really-were-my] closest friends.
No way. SO surreal. Walking into B&N and pulling your book from the shelf.
You can see it's a verrrrr-y interesting read.
And here are my two pages, featuring projects I made with fabric sent direct from Ms. Amy Butler herself.
Oh my sweet stars.
That's right, folks. Jade Sims' Craft Hope book is OUT, and our local B&N has three copies waiting to be devoured (as do other stores around the country). You can also order one here.
New Flash! The publisher is sending me a copy to give away on this blog, so stay tuned.
I love this 5-star review someone put on barnesandnoble.com:
July 22, 2010: Wow!!! This book is a must have! There are so many quality projects by well known people. But what makes this book unique is that each craft is paired with a charity. The very craft you make can be used to help someone in need. I can't wait to get started!!! This book is a one of a kind! I highly recommend this book!!!
Now THAT'S serious exclamation point use, peeps. I mean, peeps!!!
One last thing . . .
I can't stop laughing at this picture. A barista at B&N came around with a tray of free Starbucks samples of double chocolate somethings. They were coffee-free so we let the kids have one. Here's Lill, her bag stylishly over her arm, Starbucks in hand, browsing the bookshelves. It's SO HER! Is she 3 going on 13 or what?
Happy day, everyone.
